A Prenant Pause...
Wed, 10-06-2010 - 2:25am

I am going through something. A transition. I’m not sure if it hurts. I’m not sure what I feel, but I know I feel as though I need to reach out. And I feel like I need support that I can’t ask for, because I have no idea what to say. I’m trying for the first time to understand how I feel and to bring myself back to life.

Good for you for leaving an abusive relationship! Since the weight issue is bothering you, why don't you join Weight Watchers or a local Overeaters Anonymous group? They will teach you the skills to reach your goal. It's always good to have a positive outlook that you will find a good man to build a life with. I divorced my emotionally abusive husband, and after 2 and a half years of dating, I have found a man who treats me the way I should be treated. Just remember that when you date, things will usually be wonderful during the first 1 to 4 months. You have to wait and see after that if the man continues to meet all of your main needs. If it goes downhill after the beginning of a new relationship, be prepared to cut him loose. Don't settle for a man who has dealbreakers. Keep on looking until you find "the one." You have to sift through a lot of sand until you find the treasure. Good luck!

Oh hon. Your extra weight is more in your mind than anywhere. From where I'm sitting, you're absolutely stunning. One of my best girlfriends and I always remind each other to "be your own best friend."

You have a lot of "hard truths" in your own words already.
